Default Catching up with Kevin Pittsnogle

Figured it was best suited in the college forum.

Quote:
Less than three years ago, Pittsnogle was an all-American senior averaging 19.3 points who led West Virginia to the 2006 regional semifinals. He expected to be chosen in the N.B.A draft. He was not.

Now, at 24, he is a middle school teacher in his hometown. He is also an unpaid assistant coach for a high school basketball team. He bowls in leagues three nights a week and occasionally plays bingo at Big Bucks Bingo. His wife, Heather, is a bank teller. They have two children and live in a double-wide trailer, and together they wonder how much appetite they have for uprooting their lives again so Pittsnogle can have one more chance at a basketball career.

I'll always be grateful to the man who gave me a new way to express when a big white guy drains a three in someone's face (I realize there are better players that do this but how much fun is to say "that guy just got Pittsnogled"?). At the same time, I will never forget that he destroyed my bracket in that tournament.
